Advocacy is a vital component of the Monroe Owen County Medical Society’s mission. Our members advocate in several ways.  First, physician members advocate on behalf of patients so that they may receive the best possible health care.  They also advocate on behalf of physicians at the state and national level to ensure their professional practice environment is optimized to allow them to provide unparalleled quality care for their patients.  It is an ongoing goal of the Monroe Owen County Medical Society to honor the rich legacy of the medical profession while actively participating in the development of healthcare’s future design for our community, our state and our nation.
